“Engage Every Age: How to Effectively Leverage the Strengths of Each Generation in the Workplace”

A variety of generations exist in the workplace. Each has their differences and similarities, with supervisors unsure how to mesh workers into a productive workforce. A recent survey by Ernst & Young revealed that “Baby-boomers, born between 1946 and the mid-1960s, are not slacking off as they age; they are seen as hard-working and productive. The middle ranks of Generation X-ers, who might be expected to be battling their way up the corporate ladder, are viewed as the best team players. Opinions on the youth of Generation Y, also known as “millennials”, are less surprising: good at tech stuff but truculent and a bit work-shy.” (“Wining the Generation Game.” Economist. 9/28/2013). In this month’s program, Anne Loehr will examine the age biases we bring to work; and help develop skills to mentor, delegate and interact effectively with each generation.
